6:01 am
i'm peggy bunker in for laura this morning. >> i'm scott mcgrew. a man with a gun has surrendered after keeping san jose s.w.a.t at bay for hours. police on camden avenue, i don't think you're seeing the proper video there shut down camden avenue overnight as they were near a home near samson way and del paso avenue. this is also where bob redell is live all morning. bob, tell us about the end of the standoff. >> well, it ended peacefully, good morning to you there, scott. which san jose police is very happy about. started around 8:00 last night with this man who holed himself up in a home here on del paso avenue with him firing some rounds into the neighborhood. >> my parents and what my dad said is about he fired 20 shots from his high-powered rifle at the neighbor he thinks is doing illegal activities. and then retreated back into his house.
6:02 am
>> firing those shots into the ground, according to police, not at someone, just into the ground and, yes, did retreat back into the home. that was around 8:00. stayed in that home until 3:20 this morning. the police department not only had their officers out here, but merge, which is their version of s.w.a.t. s.w.a.t did surround the house. they were in some sort of communication with the man throughout the night and the early morning. they said he was quiet, but eventually did agree to come out and surrender peacefully, as i mentioned. he has been taken into custody and some officers are still out here processing the scene. of course, they wanted to retrieve that rifle from inside his home. and you heard that teenager was speaking with us who lived in this same neighborhood telling us that this man tried to steal his cats before and that he kind of become the self-appointed neighborhood watch. the take away, though, from
6:03 am
listening to this teen they were not very fond of this man. but sounds like this man was a menace in the neighborhood. no one was hurt when he fired the shots into the ground. several hour police standoff but ended peacefully and camden avenue is back open after it was shut down for quite some time last night. so, this is not going to affect your commute. reporting live here in san jose, bob redell. >> we saw as you were talking some police cars drive by with their lights on, et cetera. this is done. if i'm taking kids to school or going to work this morning y can safely get in the car, everything is going it be fine. >> unless you live on dprx el paso and samson way, that immediate area is still shut down. there were shots fired and probably have to collect casings and that sort of thing. it's not clear if they needed a warrant, if they needed a warrant, maybe still waiting on that to get inside the home to
6:04 am
retrieve that rifle. >> very good. bob redell, thank you much. 6:03 let's get you to a developing story this one unbelievable after a south bay teenager lucky to be alive after hitching a flight to the hawaiian islands. the teenager survived more than five hours on the flight from san jose to maui. "today in the bay" christie smith joining us from san jose international. is there surveillance of this boy getting on to that plane? >> that's what we're hearing there is, apparently, some security footage of him hopping a fence and then i guess somehow sneaking on to that hawaiian airlines plane. but there's so many questions this morning. how did this 16-year-old kid get this idea and how did he pull it off and how did he survive? we're talking about a 5 1/2 hour flight from san jose halfway across the pacific ocean to maui and he did it apparently in the
6:05 am
wheel well of this plane. but we do have a picture this morning that i wanted to start with showing you and that is of this teenager on a stretcher. apparently he was being taken to be checked out at the hospital. that photo given to us by maui news. also new video of a hawaiian airlines plane in san jose this morning. the plane that was on that left sunday morning and airport officials say they found the teen on the other end on the tarmac after the flight. the fbi questioned the santa clara teen who said he ran away, jumped a fence at the airport and stowed away in the boeing 767. but at the time he left, he apparently didn't know where he was headed. >> you know, he looked pretty good from what i could see. you know, again, young juvenile and didn't appear to be dirty or all greased up from being in the
6:06 am
wheel well. >> all the security measures in place. it's alarming and scary at the same time. >> now, paramedics, of course, checked the teen out for injuries since the plane is not pressurized there and according to what we are hearing, it can get as cold as 80 degrees below zero. what the fbi is saying is it is very likely that he was unconscious for most of the flight. the fbi is investigating, of course, officials here at the san jose airport are looking into and everyone wants to know how he pulled this off. reporting live in san jose,  christie smith, "today in the bay." >> that's the interesting part, the fbi now investigating and saying that he's exceptionally lucky and apparently had an argument with his family and decided to hitch a plane going anywhere. just happened to get on the hawaiian airlines one. >> he was lucky he wasn't crushed right from the beginning.
